Cosmetic surgery is a rapidly growing industry with more and more Americans wanting to look as good as they feel. This includes surgical and non-surgical procedures. High demand is driven by the fact that the antiquated stigma associated with cosmetic surgery has declined, the significance in looking good and feeling your best in our youth-focused society is progressively increasing, and competition in the workplace has pushed older workers to seek an edge in the job market.

Cosmetic procedures aren’t restricted to the wealthy any longer. Beauty can be found on any budget, and there’s no longer a need to wait until you’ve saved money. There are many affordable procedures and financing options in today’s cosmetic surgery market. Some cosmetic surgery centers even offer bundling packages for a flat fee combining several services and procedures. Equally, it’s important to weigh the cost-to-benefits options with your surgeon, and find out what’s really worth the spend for you. For example, rather than a full surgical face lift, perhaps consider an alternative like a visit to the Medspa which offers Botox injections for brow furrows and frown lines, or for fuller lips, dermal fillers. Also, for those stubborn acne marks chemical peels can deliver great results. Communication is key when discussing cosmetic surgery, and deciding on what options work best for you. Dr. Deal and Dr. Nease actively listen to your cosmetic surgery goals, and will help determine the best solutions to accommodate your needs and suit your budget.

Additionally, Southern Surgical Arts offers great financing solutions to quickly get you on the road to beauty. Southern Surgical Arts makes beauty come easy with CareCredit and Glamour Credit. CareCredit works like a typical credit card, and sets up a monthly payment plan allowing you to make payments on procedures and services over time. CareCredit is designed for health and beauty purchases only. The card can be used for beauty procedures as mentioned above, in addition to liposuction, laser treatments, and much more. GlamourCredit financing works similarly, but allows you to choose between short or long term financing options. For more details and information on services, procedures, or financing please visit
